I am voluntarily submitting my honest review after receiving an ARC of this ebook via NetGalley. This novella is a quick read with lots of potential that would have been much better as a full-length novel. Although Jack has admired Cassy from afar for quite some time, the culmination of their romance feels rushed and the trusted forged between them unlikely at best. The issues that lie between them are resolved with so little difficulty that they seem mere trifles when in reality, Cassy's concerns about Jack's ability to remain faithful to one woman, and Jack's fears for Cassy's very sanity are in truth very serious issues that cannot be merely swept aside in the course of an afternoon. These are issues better tackled in a longer format than the novella. Still, this is a fun, entertaining ghost story that fans of Gothic romance with enjoy by fire on a chilly autumn afternoon.

Lord Michael Beck is the third son, he has no calling for the clergy or the military. He’s tired of living off his father and wants to make his own fortune. A noble in trade will cause quite the scandal and a friends wedding is just the place to collect debts owed. Lady Ivy Dallimore has seen her sisters miserable in their marriages and vows to follow her brain and not her heart. The last thing she needs is lord Michael, the only man to stir any feelings in her, to be around for the entire wedding festivities. Every time Michael sees Ivy he longs to talk to her, but Ivy avoids him at every turn. Hopefully this wedding will give him the chance to finally spend time with her. Michael vows to prove himself to Ivy and that he is a man she can trust and give her heart to. Ivy wants to believe in Michael but fear just might be stronger then the heart. This is a fun and witty story, some great banter with good laughs and sexual tension. Also a ghost that drives Ivy to distraction.

Do you believe in ghosts? Well Lady Cassandra Priske does because she has seen them most of her life! When her family is summoned to Keyvnor Castle for the reading of her great uncle's will, she knows the tales are true it being haunted when she sees an aberration in the window upon arrival. What she doesn't expect to find is Lord Jack St Giles, a notorious rake who she has spent a year avoiding. But Jack came expressly to see her and try to win her over because she is all he has been able to think about. When ghosts start appearing that only Cassy can see and her family are trying to keep it secret in case she is thought mad, Jack begins to wonder what is really going on. As Jack spends time with Cassy and her adorable poodle Oscar (yes he steals the show at times!) his feelings only strength. But what is really happening to Cassy? Are there really spirits only she can see? This is a delightful novella that kept my attention with the development between the main characters and all the wonderful secondary characters. I could not keep from smiling and wondering what was gong to happen! You will really enjoy this tale and will want to read more by Ava Stone.

Wonderful book by Ava Stone. Once Upon A Moonlit Path is book 1 in the Haunted Hearts series so you will want to start here. This is the first story I have read of Ava’s but it won’t be the last. I am looking forward to the next book in this series, Once Upon A Midnight Clear, release date April 17, 2018. I found that the characters in the book to be great as well as the storyline. She can defiantly paint a picture as the descriptions are very clear. The book has a castle, ghosts, rakes, kindness, death, a will, misunderstandings, unkind parents, relatives, friendships, a maze, madness and we can’t forget love. I recommend this book as I read it in one sitting. Travel back in time to 1811 Cornwall with Lady Cassandra Priske, Jack Hazelwood - Earl of St. Giles and Oscar the poodle. ***This book was gifted to me and I am voluntarily reviewing.

Lady Cassandra doesn't want to go to the castle. She really doesn't like the ghost infested castle. She sees ghosts from the moment she gets there and no one believes her. Jack has wanted Cassandra for a while and found a way to get invited to the castle. Jack worries that maybe Cassandra isn't quite sane, but he loves her and is willing to overlook that. His biggest obstacle is her father. Her father doesn't approve of him and he will have to get around that.

Ava Stone's story is part of a trilogy book.  I have not read the other two pieces in it. I received this copy in exchange for an honest review (of Ava Stone's piece only). A cute spooky ghost story about Lord St.Giles who has loved Cassy for more than a year. He has invited himself along with his friend Michael to the reading of her Great Uncle's will just so he can see and woo her. She is a woman who is intimidated by his reputation and has tried a avoid him. St. Giles scheme to catch her at the spooky and haunted castle succeeds and he sets out to finally win her hand. The relationship blossoms but there is a problem, she can see ghosts and when she sees one very foreboding ghost she can't help but scream.  Everyone there, including her parents and St. Giles, believe that she has gone mad.  At first, he tries to believe her, but her ability to see ghosts that he cannot see causes him to wonder if maybe she isn't the wife for him. Will he throw caution to the wind and realize that life with her is worth a ghost or two?  It was cute, sweet, and romantic. I enjoyed the chemistry between the two main characters and the struggle they face concerning her ability to see (or not see) ghosts.

This is one of the fun Regency novellas set in the haunted Castle Keyvnor in Cornwall. Relatives near and far have been summoned for the reading of the will of the castle's former owner. Cassy certainly doesn't want to go to a haunted castle, since she has seen ghosts from time to time, but her father must attend, so the whole family has to go. While her family tries to pretend that she isn't really seeing ghosts and may even consider her mad, Cassy is just trying to get through the stay without embarrassing her family or being haunted. The ghosts have other plans, however, and one ghost in particular plagues her. She finds help from an unexpected source, as she had tried to avoid Jack Hazleton for most of the season. Now he's determined to get to know her better, and what better place than in a castle in the country, where everyone will be gathered for the will reading. Jack doesn't quite know how to handle the fact that Cassy sees ghosts, but he supports her nonetheless, which is more than she gets from her family. He's willing to defy her family to protect her and to make her his wife. This is a fun, romantic story with just enough chills to be a good story for Halloween or anytime of year. It stands on it's own, but it is connected to the whole Castle Keyvnor series.
